Jimmie's Candies Is A Sweet Paradise
General Manager Rob Granado with Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
There's no doubt that people have a love affair with chocolate. Chocolate is more than a candy - it can send a message of love of friendship, cheer you up when you've had a lousy day or just plain make you feel good. Next week millions of people will celebrate Valentine's Day with chocolate. Bet you didn't know that some of the best chocolate is hand made in Dania. Jimmie's Candies makes and sells chocolate locally and has two retail locations - in Dania and Wilton Manors. General Manager Rob Granado showed us around this real-life Willy Wonka Land and gave us some words of wisdom.
We asked candy expert Rob Granado what V-Day gifts score points with the ladies? "If you've been going out with someone for only a month or so, a heart might be too much. Stick with a regular box. If you've been married for 25 years - get her a big heart! She wants the heart! And don't forget that men love chocolate too, especially chocolate covered pretzels and turtles."
